The best part is you can also improve your integration and balance skills at the same time! Roller skating is a great way to de-stress, exercise, and stay fit while having fun.

The Positive Mental Health Effects of Just 10 Minutes of Skating

A study was done in which the participants were assigned to either a skating group or a non-skating group. The participants in the skating group were given 10 minutes of skating time, while those in the non-skating group remained seated for 10 minutes.

The results showed that after just 10 minutes of skating, there was an increase in positive mental health effects such as mood enhancement and reduced depression.
